Experienced Personal Injury Representation

Tough Representation For Victims Of Surgical Errors

Mentally preparing for surgery is already an emotionally draining experience for many people. You should not have to fear a doctor’s or nurse’s negligent actions causing you more problems than you had before the operation.

Just like any other medical malpractice claim, however, proving negligence on the part of your health care provider in the case of a surgical error is no easy task. In Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and the surrounding region, victims of medical negligence put their trust in us, Vincent J. DeSalvo, Attorney at Law, for help pursuing justice.

These Errors Can Have Lasting Consequences

A surgical error does not just mean a longer recovery time. In many cases, it can lead to new medical conditions and injuries that require additional treatment and medication — meaning new piles of medical bills.

Contact us when a surgeon or nurse makes an error that can cause new pain and suffering, such as:

  • Leaving a surgical instrument inside of you
  • Burning you with a Bovie or other type of electrical equipment
  • Causing an infection due to unsanitary conditions in the operating room
  • Operating on the wrong part of your body
  • Administering the wrong dosage of anesthesia

We will work with independent medical experts to determine the extent of your injuries and whether they were avoidable.

As an experienced trial lawyer, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial if we believe that is your best chance of receiving fair compensation from the hospital and its insurance provider.
